Something I liked in this CMD - SPACE interview with Dave Wiskus. Worked on Vesper a great instant writing app on the iPhone. Good interview but something stood out in particular about how they started the design for Vesper (paraphrasing slightly here)
"We sat down and made a list of all the bad things people would be able to say about the app we were building"
That's kind of negative but also not a bad way to start a project :) And they didn't even try and address all of those issues but felt pretty well prepared for the inevitable haters.
